I suspect the admin of this one website are tracking me and being malicious.

 

I went to this one support website and like a fool I posted some personal information (non identifying).  Shortly after this person didn't like what I wrote and attacked me, after I told them off (sorry but I was attacked and they deserved it), I was banned. I went back under other IP addresses wondering what happened, why I was attacked and banned. I wrote the person that attacked me and find out why they reported me. I was able to get on the website but every time I went to message them I was instantly logged out. How can this happen when my IP address is changed? Have they installed some embedded tracking thing in my browser.

 

I used spybot, malwarebites, avg, cleaners etc. I don't care about going to this website but I feel that they are tracking me and have posted there about me and places I go online, converstations I have! They are ruining my life! Please help me!!! Sorry for the drama but this has been going on for a long time and I would like some peace of mind.

 

How are the admin doing this to me? :(

Which IP address did you change? The ban is probably a ban on your user account for that website and possibly a ban on your ISP IP address. You can find your ISP IP address by going to www.google.com and typing in my ip then hit enter. You can change the computers IP address all you want, but the ISP IP address will be unaffected. Sometimes ISP's change their IP's every few months, sometimes more, sometimes not at all. You might be able to call them and get a new address.

 

If you used the same user name on other websites, the admin may have googled your username and found the common sites related to that specific user name.

I have tried many IP address, when I go there with my regular IP address, I can not see anything. I get a message 403 forbidden.  If I use Tor or a proxy, I can go there and make a new account. I can intereact with many people but I can not message this one person (who I think is an admin troll) and if I do try I am INSTANTLY logged out every single time. How can that even be?

 

Thanks for your help though, I just don't understand this at all. :( I want to know how they do this.

I guess my ISP IP address is blocked but if I go to what is my IP and am using a proxy, it shows the proxy IP adress.

No I never do this.

 

I did noticed the website tried to give me XSS sometimes. Would that do something?

It is possible there is some cookie (temperary file) related to the website stored for the browser you are using, clearing all browsing history would get rid of this info. It is tough to say for certain what they would/could be using.

 

 

"If I use Tor or a proxy, I can go there and make a new account. I can intereact with many people but I can not message this one person (who I think is an admin troll) and if I do try I am INSTANTLY logged out every single time. How can that even be?"

 

My guess is that person is kicking/banning anyone new that contacts them, they could set this up to be automatic. He may use some type of whitelist for people contacting him, if you are not on it, you get kicked for trying. Again this is speculation but I doubt there is any hacking being done, especially if you are using a proxy.

We really can't help you evade bans. But administrators of websites have multiple tools at their disposal to manage their site. If you feel you have been dealt with unfairly I suggest you research and find who is ultimately responsible for the site in question. Be that the owner or decision making administrator and contact them via email and appeal your case. We can't help you beyond that in regards to dealing with another site.

If you feel you have been the recipient of malware you can start a new topic in the malware forum. We can and will help you with a malware issue. If you wish to do so.

I don't want to evade the ban, I don't want anything to do with the website but I do want to know what they have done to my computer to allow them to see my conversations on other sites and post them on their website.
I'd also like to know how they can instantly log me out, when other people do not have that problem. I'd like to know how they ruined my life. I will try that thread.

 

I will post in that thread thanks.
